When everyone discovers that this “COVID curing” drug being tossed around in the media doesn’t just allegedly cure COVID and Malaria but actually..

and that almost all COVID patients can be treated/cured with virtually zero chemicals and only high doses of intravenous Vitamin C,
and that ventilators are in most cases not only unnecessary but in fact a death sentence for the patient,

That relationship with Cohen isn’t the only ethical pall over Novartis. Novartis faced a number of bribery scandals. In 2017, the company faced allegations it bribed physicians and other public officials to boost prescriptions and company sales in Greece
In August 2016, Novartis executives in South Korea were indicted for allegedly making $2 million in payments to physicians in exchange for prescribing Novartis medications.
In November 2015, Novartis agreed to pay $390 million to settle a civil lawsuit related to the kickback payments to specialty pharmacy companies that distributed the drugs Exjade and Myfortic.

Starting a series on clinical Pearls I am gathering in #COVID19 patients based on experiences of many experts

Will add as we go along

Feel free to add your own observations/experiences

#covidclinicalpearls /1
Anosmia is likely the most specific #COVID19 related symptom
30% of patients have anosmia as their 1st symptom
#covidclinicalpearls /2
Around 90% of patients have fever.
50% maybe afebrile at the time of presentation
Fever tends to be very resistant to routine measures in hospitalized patients
There is no consensus that NSAIDs are to be avoided in #COVID2019 patients

Michigan's @GovWhitmer didn't actually reverse a non-existent policy banning hydroxychloroquine for COVID19 patients but Fox News (and others) didn't waste the chance to dissemble a Democratic administration's actual statement and intent for political purposes.

(Here's the memo from the MI Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs that's being misconstrued as a now-reversed gubernatorial decree banning hydroxycholoroquine - it's actually guidance intended to prevent a shortage that has now happened.)…

New trial of #hydroxychloroquine for #COVID from China. First thoughts:
1- It's a preprint on medRxiv - this means it has yet to be evaluated by the medical community and the information presented may be erroneous (read with a shaker of salt nearby)…
2- That said, the research protocol was approved by proper Ethics Cmte at Renmin Hospital in Wuhan, research procedures follow Declaration of Helsinki & registered in Chinese Clinical Trial registry #hydrochloroquine #Covid_19

3- Randomized, double-blinded trial (nice!)
4- Added #hydrochloroquine (200mg 2x/day x 5days) to standard therapy (oxygen, antivirals, antibacterials, immunoglobulins +/- steroids)
5- Patients could not have severe/critical #Covid_19 infection; avg age was ~45y.o., even split M/F.

Pourquoi la piste de la #CHLOROQUINE n'est PAS une #FAKEMED concernant l'épidémie de #CORONAVIRUS #COVIDー19 . On en parle dans ce fil, sources a l'appuis, car j'ai vu passer un certains d'arguments fallacieux à ce sujet.
D'abords, on est tous d'accord pour dire que la "#CHLOROQUINE est LE traitement du #CORONAVIRUS" n'est pas une phrase acceptable, mais personne ne l'a prononcer dans la sphère médiatique, alors passons sur ce qui ressemble a un argument homme de paille.
On est tous d'accord pour dire que ce traitement ne doit pas être pris sans l'avis d'un médecin, mais de toute façon il nécessite une prescription médicale et... c'est le cas pour tous les traitements nécessitant une prescription médicale. #OBVIOUS
